Cupping

What is it and how does it work?

Cupping is a traditional Chinese therapy that is used to reduce pain and relax muscles. Like acupuncture and gua sha, cupping is believed to help to regulate the flow of Qi.


Do you use Fire?

No, sorry to disappoint! At our office we use a special pumping tool to create suction in the cups. We can place the cups on your back, stomach, arms, or legs-- wherever the problem is! When the cups are taken off, you'll notice pretty cool looking circles. Don't worry, these circles are normal and usually clear up after a few days.


But how does it actually work?

Suction pulls the skin upward, which expands and breaks tiny blood vessels under your skin. Your body then treats the cupping area like an injury, starting the natural healing process. Amazing! This encourages healing in the problem area. [1]
